She apparently veered back onto the road but overcorrected causing the vehicle to roll several times. The car came to a rest on the driver's side in a ditch. Rainier was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected, according to MHP.
The roads and weather were clear and dry at the time. Speed, alcohol or drugs are not considered factors in the crash.
The fatality was the 173rd on Montana roadways in 2019.
